Jags' Major Tournament Dream

Phil Jagielka

Phil Jagielka has set his sights on playing at Euro 2012.

The Everton man has been tipped to play at right-back in England's crunch qualifier with Montenegro on Friday evening.

Jagielka, 29, has never participated in a big international competition but doing so remains a major ambition of the ex-Sheffield United man.

"I have not been to a major tournament and it would be nice to do so," he told evertontv.

"We all know there is only one way of doing that - that is me progressing at Everton and playing a little bit better than we have done at the start of the season. The lads are still confident and morale is still good."

As well as performing well for his Club, Everton legend Graeme Sharp says there is another factor which could boost Jagielka's chances of appearing in Poland and Ukraine next summer.

He's already played at right-back and central defence for England and has Premier League experience in the centre of midfield.

"When it comes to the national side and someone asks you to play wherever, you take that opportunity and I hope if that is the case he does well and puts in a good performance," said Sharp, a member of the 1986 Scotland World Cup squad.

"His versatility will help and as a manager you look at people who can fill in.

"It would be a major achievement for him, the Euros are very prestigious now, as is the World Cup. Hopefully he can nail down a regular position and his versatility will surely help him get a place."
